Hypothesis-based machine learning for deep-water channel systems
Machine learning algorithms are readily being incorporated into petroleum industry workflows for use in well-log correlation, prediction of rock properties, and seismic data interpretation. However, there is a clear disconnect between sedimentology and data analytics in these workflows because sedimentologic data is largely qualitative and descriptive. Sedimentology defines stratigraphic architecture and heterogeneity, which can greatly impact reservoir quality and connectivity and thus hydrocarbon recovery. Deep-water channel systems are an example where predicting reservoir architecture is ...
